Yesterday's Foot Ball Practice.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The 'varsity eleven played a sharp practice game of two full halves with the second eleven yesterday afternoon. With the exception of Corbett and Sherwin most of the candidates for the team were in the game at one time or another. The varsity lined up as follows: Rushers, Cumnock, Upton, Finlay, Cranston, P. Trafford, Newell, Hallowell; quarter-back, Dean; half-backs, Lake and Fearing; full-back, B. Trafford. The team which opposed them was made up as follows: Rushers, Mason, Shea, Shaw, Bangs, Heard, Alward, Miller; quarter-back, Harding; half-backs, Lee, Perry and Blagden; full-back, Frothingham.

The 'varsity showed some improvement in team play; but the second eleven is also improving in this respect, and when they had possession of the ball yesterday managed to make the game exceedingly lively work for the 'varsity. Captain Cumnock is playing in fine form now, Mason, who plays opposite him, is one of the liveliest men who is playing foot ball at Harvard; Cumnock is not apt to play against any man this year who will give him more trouble. The other end of the 'varsity line was well looked after by Hallowell, whose work is steadily good. Newell played brilliantly at tackle, having no trouble whatever with Alward; Blanchard, who played against Alward when Newell left the game during the first half, also outplayed his man. On the other side of the centre Upton and Shea were closely matched, though Upton had the best of it yesterday. In the centre old players like P. Trafford and Cranston showed a tendency to tackle high which must be overcome. Shaw did decidedly better work than any of the other men playing in the centre; he will make an exceedingly valuable man next year. Each line succeeded in making holes in the other, but the 'varsity rushers broke through in better form; Newell especially went through his man like a shot, and stopped the backs with considerable loss. All of the men back of the line are improving in their play. Harding continues to do fine work for the second eleven; he follows the ball better than any man on either team; in tackling there is nothing to choose between him and Dean, but the latter interferes in much the better form.
